WOYWW #150

Well, this is the second time I'm participating, and as many of you predicted, it's addictive!!! I had so much fun hopping around the globe and seeing all the amazing craft spaces, loved it! This week as I'm back at work I won't manage to get round as many as last week, but I'll give it my best shot.


Here's my desk this week, working on a big project (big in the sense that it is taking me ages). It's going to be a mini album showing my DH's family history. I got this set of amazing old photos from my SIL, I've scanned them all and they are ready to go as soon as the pages are ready. Papers are Prima Printery altered with stamping, inking and collaging vintage images printed on tissue. (instructions for doing that a few posts below) As you can see, desk is in "work mode"...

If you are visiting and wondering what this post (and it's funny title) is all about, read all about it HERE

  37. Hi Astrid, thanks for visiting my desk. Beautiful papers, they remind me of my grandmother's post card collection. Still sad to hear you can't get Tim's dies to work in your Cuttlebug. Did you try with the 2 "B" plates? What actually happens when you do or what doesn't happen - would love to help. BJ#12

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
